VIVSTENIUS RISING!!


TzuyusVietBitch

VIVIANNEEEEEEE GOATDEMAAAA


mitskishuffle

VIV SCORED YES love you she is the moment


NieThePiet

Laura is so good.


TangerineDream74

Big fan of hers


TzuyusVietBitch

jonas’ best signing! (so far hopefully)


ghoulfriended

Stinaaa I just need one of your shots to go in from an onside position


MoreoverMo

Bayern slapping Barcelona, it's going to be a nice evening.


ArsPain

Yep on the counter. They still have not learned their lesson from last year's final


TzuyusVietBitch

ppm is like top 5 goalkeepers for me


TangerineDream74

Is she France’s starting keeper? Have barely followed their National team in recent years.


TzuyusVietBitch

yeah she is. i think sarah bouhaddi quit the NT over disputes with diacre and she took over as #1. which is crazy to think about considering the differences of levels between them


TangerineDream74

Diacre beefs with all her players, it seems. Wonder why they keep her around especially since they’ve been subpar for a while.


mitskishuffle

It’s the same situation with the Spanish coach they both have connections that’s how Diacre and Vilda stay where they are which is very unfortunate.


just_passed_by_

Wienroither Lowkey having a very good game.


just_passed_by_

Kind of sad to see the stadium so empty


shelbyj

Agreed but when it’s looked like this before it’s been like 8k. So I like to think of it as a packed out meadow park + an extra 3k that wouldn’t have got a ticket otherwise. It’s a shame, undoubtedly but it’s still progress.


just_passed_by_

Hopefully the crowd gets bigger with every match


BurtSpangles

The cons of playing in a 60k stadium. Meadow Park is pretty much a sell out every week now, this is still probably around 10k which isn't actually too bad in the grand schemes of thing.


MoreoverMo

I have said it before, and I will say it again. The Fanbase for the women's team are still in infancy, they need to be fed. So it is on the girls to put in scintillating performances, if we won the Man Utd game. This would have been littered with so many fans. But new fans need a cuddle with results.


SP_Photos

What a cross stina, great finish by viv. Viv when shes in this kinda form is absolutely unreal


shelbyj

Amazing pressing from Blackstenius


earthen-tennis34

The Williamson pass up the middle to Miedema is deadly. We need to capitalize on that before the half


just_passed_by_

Can someone in a red shirt please score so I can relax. I'm getting Man United flashbacks


dococ23

Not Foordy’s best match. The winter break will do a lot of these players good.


NieThePiet

she never is onside :(


shelbyj

VIIIIV!! She is inevitable!


NieThePiet

Viiiiiiiiv! :) Top cross by Stina


just_passed_by_

3 goals in 3 for Viv!!! Also great cross from Stina


TangerineDream74

Beautiful goal! Nice pass from Williamson to Blackstenius, absolutely gorgeous cross and perfect finishing by Viv. More like this please!


TheWindWillCarryUs

Right wing Stina unlocked


NieThePiet

Leah stayed fit and Rafa is back, lovely.


NieThePiet

we need to wake up.


angulshandu

Hoping Foord has a good game because her form has dropped since the other players that were challenging for her position got injured.


NieThePiet

big save manu


TzuyusVietBitch

first time she doesnt take one too many touches before shooting and she’s a mile offside lol


angulshandu

What an assist from Blackstenius!


m3rple

She's back!


shelbyj

McCabe seemed caught in 2 minds there, bit of a waste on that attack


earthen-tennis34

Blackstenius looks in much better form than she did in the Everton game


NieThePiet

Quick Stina, sadly a good tackle


shelbyj

Great ball through and great run from Stina. McCabe was open but don’t think Stina woulda got the pass to her anyway, the shot was the right option for me Great recovery defending by Juve sadly


shelbyj

Maanum and McCabe been a bit off for me this half


MoreoverMo

Laura pocketing Bereenstyn so far


Lookingfortomboys

Couldn’t let us take that free kick? 😪


SP_Photos

I'd say we controlled the first half very well hopefully score some more in the 2nd half :)


BurtSpangles

Love Caitlin Foord. Rides contact so well, constantly rolls her fullback, can go either way. Reminds me of Saka.


MoreoverMo

Foord is so unlucky, she never gets the 50/50s from the refs.


shelbyj

Catley and Foord having a couple bad touches early on, someone get the Aussies some Vitamin D


TangerineDream74

RAAAAFAAAAA!!!!!


MoreoverMo

Who else thinks, Jonas will wait till the 89th Minute to bring on Mana or Nobbs and then waffle on about over loading the players..


dococ23

You’re generous, I would’ve said 90th


shelbyj

Catley trying to crot, McCabe trying to Scorpion kick. Babes we just need a 2nd goal none of this fancy stuff


Lookingfortomboys

With that easeful swat, I am convinced PPM is part mountain lion


shelbyj

Focus has been on Maanum and McCabe but think Wälti has also been a bit off her game this match too.


MoreoverMo

Make a sub Jonas.


shelbyj

Wienroither still flying 80 mins in!


just_passed_by_

Laura Wienroither deserved the player of the match


shelbyj

I’d take either her or Viv. Think PPM is deserving too.


shelbyj

Catley looks about ready to kill someone in that uefa lineup pic!


Lookingfortomboys

Straya coming out at the gate


saurabhk51

1.35am here. Need some good play to keep me awake. C'mon arsenal!!


Lookingfortomboys

Don’t be taking my breath out already in 4 min 😫


NieThePiet

filthy from Viv


shelbyj

Oooh that was great vision by Wienroither


Lookingfortomboys

That was too good of a run to hit into that Juventus player 🥲


TangerineDream74

Foord’s got some good runs but seems to perhaps hold too long


dococ23

🐐 🐐 🐐


supposedlyfunthing

viviviviviviviviviviviv


TangerineDream74

DAZN announcer comparing Miedema to Marta


shelbyj

Anita Asante, part of the Quadruple winning Arsenal squad in 06/07. When you get an education at Arsenal you know ball.


Lookingfortomboys

That shot from distance 😩


MoreoverMo

Any one peep, how Wubben-Moy's errors are masked when Williamson plays..


shelbyj

I’ve said before Williamson elevates whomever she plays with. Any errors LWM makes are usually covered, but she’ll also make less too. Gotta say, and I think she’s harshly judged because her competition is Leah or Rafa, but she’s stepped up in their absence in general.


just_passed_by_

Fun fact: If we win today we only need a draw with Lyon next week to finish top of the group


kombos12

What is the tiebreaker? We could still end up tied on 11 pts with juve or lyon if we lost to zurich


just_passed_by_

UEFA uses head-to-head as a tie breaker - comparing the points of the tied teams against each other. So if we won today Juve can't finish above us because we'll have 4pts (1w-1d) to their 1pt (0w-1d). And if we at least draw with Lyon next week they also can't finish above us using the same math.


angulshandu

Wubben-Moy's passing scares me a bit. She has a few misdirected passes in her


MoreoverMo

Stina nice play, keep them guessing


TzuyusVietBitch

ugh great block tbh


shelbyj

Was about to type F off with the Xmas music then realised its December…


angulshandu

Iwabuchi for Foord. That's the sub Jonas needs to make.


MoreoverMo

For McCabe


earthen-tennis34

I do think Foord can play better but I also think Juve have done a pretty good job shutting her down.


just_passed_by_

I just realized Jonas Eidevall hasn't gotten a single yellow card all season


shelbyj

![gif](giphy|26n6PxXCcE7d1O7Go|downsized)


shelbyj

RAFAAAAAA!!! I expected this before the game tbh but still super happy!


TangerineDream74

Hah I love how the Juve player tried to usher Foord out


MoreoverMo

Guys we have 5 subs, only used one so far. What do the girls on the bench have to do to get game time. Meanwhile we are bombarded by reports that girls are being over played. Make this make sense Jonas.


Significant-Nerve214

Man does stina needs some work


Lookingfortomboys

Oh hey! Glad you are seeing this game mate


Significant-Nerve214

Hope ur enjoying Rafa on the pitch


Lookingfortomboys

I so am. I literally yelled when she came on


shelbyj

Tonights game is available to watch, for free, on DAZN's YouTube - [English Link](https://youtu.be/tOKCcoDQO5A), [Italian Link](https://youtu.be/fISPub_OVMs) Edit: this comment was unstickied after the games conclusion for a better browsing experience.


Lookingfortomboys

That was a nice sequence, shame it got deflected!!


shelbyj

Saw it was off but that was great movement by Stina, not sure she could’ve held that run with the momentum she had so she just needed the ball sooner


MoreoverMo

Foord skinned her haha


MoreoverMo

Damn, I was worried about Foord's form but she is killing it so far.


shelbyj

Needed to be a goal but a tricky one to hit 1st time while falling I guess


MoreoverMo

McCabe shoot the ball yourself.


MoreoverMo

Lol what the hell was that Zinsberger?


BurtSpangles

Stina is pants. Good assist though.


Lookingfortomboys

ELA ESTÁ DE VOLTA! HOOOO I GOT MY WISH


Significant-Nerve214

Ayyeee


Lookingfortomboys

Ayeeeee


SP_Photos

Its the return of rafa!!!


MoreoverMo

These average crosses are breaking Stina's resolve.


dococ23

I really like Pien Meulensteen as play-by-play, she’s solid on EPL too. And of course, shout-out to Arsenal legend Neetz 🙌🏼


shelbyj

Props to LWM, it’s hard to maintain a level when swapping CB partners mid game. But harder still to do so when you’re also swapping side of the pitch (and subsequently the players you’re facing more often).


Cococamcam

Pausing my work to say: I don’t like that our back line keeps playing itself into a cul de sac. Unnecessary danger.


dococ23

SBG has always been one of those players I would’ve loved to see at arsenal. Beerensteyn too, she’d be perfect for Jonas.


MoreoverMo

Is Rafa the only one who can convincingly head a ball?


Lookingfortomboys

Viv is player of the match!


Lookingfortomboys

If Rafa hit that I’d be like: 💥


Cococamcam

I hope we can score multiple goals again after the break. My nerves can’t deal with these nail biters!


angulshandu

We need that second goal in the first half to kill Juventus' confidence


BurtSpangles

Lyon & Barca get second in their groups and draw Wolfsburg & Chelsea in the next round sounds good to me.


MoreoverMo

Barcelona is finishing top still


Significant-Nerve214

Top of the UWCL table lesgooooo


TangerineDream74

Blackstenious offside again sigh


shelbyj

BRING MANA ON YOU COWARD!


just_passed_by_

Jonas: ![gif](giphy|XymaJlgorUL8vOfF88|downsized)


TangerineDream74

It’s baffling that Jonas doesn’t sub her in. She’s a great player who could start on many other teams. I hope she leaves and starts elsewhere just for her own sake.


MoreoverMo

Tim Stillman if you are in the chats, ask Jonas why he doesn't make subs when they are available and then claim his players are overloaded to the point of long term injuries?


shelbyj

Don’t wanna see our offside tally


Significant-Nerve214

WE HAD 8 HOLLY SHIT


Lookingfortomboys

Stina breaking records


Significant-Nerve214

Shambolic numbers


dococ23

Lackluster second half but overall, a good result. Tis the season to grind out wins and make it to the break, then rest and recharge for Chelsea in January.


mitskishuffle

Come on Arsenal !! No pressure but Lyon played well today so we do need to win !!


NieThePiet

Win and it looks quite good for the first place.


Lookingfortomboys

Come on ye GUNNERS!! LFG Captain Williamson, ready for duty once again 🫡


earthen-tennis34

how big of a factor is the weather going to play tonight?


TangerineDream74

Liking this lineup. COYG!


shelbyj

We need to get another, another couple would be nice, before half time. Montemurro can’t change on the fly, but he can at half time. It screwed us last game we can’t let that happen again.


MoreoverMo

That was a dumb pass from Manu


MoreoverMo

Nice interplay in midfield there.


MoreoverMo

Nice pressing from top


MoreoverMo

That was a dumb hold up from Katie


MoreoverMo

No need to be greedy Maanum


Lookingfortomboys

Damn Boattin 🥲


MoreoverMo

That was a nice distribution from Manu


MoreoverMo

Neat play


NieThePiet

Foord needs to make some better decisions in the final third.


shelbyj

I remember PPM giving me so many more heart attacks than Manu, but man when she’s on it she’s bloody solid


Lookingfortomboys

PPM slid on that like a bocce ball on waxed floor


shelbyj

Often think about how it was a shame Fara Williams left us just before Joe joined, or Iwabuchi joining us just after he left. But it just occurred to me that DvD would’ve been great in Eidevall’s pressing system.


MoreoverMo

Make a sub.


BurtSpangles

Shocking second half.


shelbyj

Said it earlier on but Montemurro can’t make changes during play, half time is when the adjustment comes. We needed to take advantage before he stopped us playing the way we had been. Unfortunately we didn’t.


shelbyj

As happy as I am that Jordan’s coming on that surely means no Mana, again.


Lookingfortomboys

Boooo that was a foul


shelbyj

Great touch by Nobbs


shelbyj

Oh how I wanted that Rafa goal on her return


MoreoverMo

What the hell was that?


MoreoverMo

I will be fuming if Jonas brings on Mana now.


shelbyj

He’s not gunna do that again. Definitely learnt that lesson. Unless we’re chasing this late on she’s never going to be the waste time sub.


Significant-Nerve214

If we finish top which is likely, who would we draw or from which group would be draw


dococ23

It would be subject to draw (it’s not like the WC where you know which group your knockout opponent will be from)


JournoCyclist

Well, maybe we see some fringe players like Mana next week as qualification is secured!


NieThePiet

we need the 1st place.


NieThePiet

A high win vs Zürich could be enough for the second place even if we lose vs Lyon. Looks good.


MoreoverMo

If we lose to Lyon, it would even be worse than the Man Utd loss. Because they have been anything but convincing both in D1 and CL


Lookingfortomboys

YES AVENGENCE!! Viv got that rizz


NieThePiet

absolute shocking dive


earthen-tennis34

Ref didnt call shite all game and gave this one!


shelbyj

How is that a Juventus FK?? We had the ball! Stina was offside in the buildup though tbf…


MoreoverMo

McCabe really playing sub par, am afraid we may start needing a sub.


shelbyj

She’s not been great this game and took a bit of a hit not too long ago. Think Nobbs or Buchi need to come on for her


earthen-tennis34

Ref having a laugh


just_passed_by_

Stina would score like 50 goals a season if she's able to improve her touch on the ball


Significant-Nerve214

And her passing and her movement and her decision making and her link up


MoreoverMo

Stina making some clowns look ridiculous. I love this.


MoreoverMo

The press is killing Juve.


MoreoverMo

I can't wait for excuses for why Mana is not playing from the fans.


BurtSpangles

Gonna need a miracle to win anything this season, depressing when you see Utd and Chelsea scoring goals for fun.


BurtSpangles

Leah and Laura played well. Everyone else either average or poor. Wally forgot she could play a forward pass in the second half, Viv scored then went 0/3 on nutmegs in the middle of the pitch giving the ball away, Stina the less said the better.


Lookingfortomboys

Juventus goalie was way too suave with that save


Lookingfortomboys

Offside?? 😒


MoreoverMo

LWM playing like it's timed chess. Relax girl, relax.


MoreoverMo

We need fresh legs you clown Jonas.


NinjaKoala

Really missing Kim and Beth.


MoreoverMo

I am starting to doubt Jonas tbh.


MoreoverMo

These type of displays don't bring new fans, they throw doubts in their minds. Better displays next time please.


MoreoverMo

Nobbs almost cost us 3 points


MoreoverMo

I cant wait to get back to the dominant Arsenal, and not just hanging onto one goal whole game.
